SAN FELIPE: Dental Work for Baja California Orphanages

July 16, 2011, San Felipe, BC - Thanks to the goodwill and generosity of Cuba Gooding Sr., Dr. Jason Arias Corpus, and the community of San Felipe, the first 19 children from two orphanages will begin receiving much needed dental care.

On June 18, the Baja Good Life Club produced a musical fundraiser in San Felipe. The sold-out event featured a night of music by Cuba Gooding Sr., the lead singer of “The Main Ingredient”, best known for their 1972 smash "Everybody Plays the Fool". The event was a fundraiser for two orphanages, Casa de Fe in San Felipe and El Oasis in Valle de Trinidad. It was held at the Pavilion in El Dorado Ranch, and the proceeds raised will pay for the dental work needed by the 55 children of both homes.

Dr. Jason Arias has significantly reduced the dental fees, in addition to closing his office during the children’s visits, so that he can focus on them. The children will be broken into smaller groups and brought to his office, so that he can provide all of the children with personal quality dental care.

Dr. Jason Arias will begin examining the children next week. The first 15 children from El Oasis on Friday, July 22nd and the first 4 girls from Casa de Fe will be seen on Sat. July 23rd. Dr. Arias will clean and examine all the children, identifying those with the greatest or most urgent needs.

The Baja Good Life Club and Casa de Fe work together to support the needs of children throughout Baja. Their next fundraiser is the Baja Love Ride, being held in La Paz, Baja California Sur March 21-24, 2012. The Baja Love Ride is a 4-day, 230-mile bicycle tour from La Paz around the cape and back to La Paz, during the 6th Annual Festival de Arte y Cultura.
